Fyodor Ivanovich Tyutchev Poems

  • You Often Watched Him
    You often watched him on the high life's level, -
    The gaily-selfish or with gloomy sight,
    Or full of thoughts, or scatted one and wild,
    As poets are - and you've scorned him forever! ...
  • Nature Is Not As You Imagine Her...
    Nature is not as you imagine her:
    She's not a mold, nor yet a soulless mask-
    She is made up of soul and freedom
    She is made up of love and speech . . . ...

    In passion's savage blindness! ...

    But spring's breath is already swaying
    The dead stalks in the field and playing
    With boughs as yet of leafage bare. ...

Republic And Motherland
 by Alfred Noyes

(Written after entering New York Harbor at Daybreak)

Up the vast harbor with the morning sun
The ship swept in from sea;
Gigantic towers arose, the night was done,
